Summary: I have enjoyed using these headphones for playing a piano. However, they once or twice fell on the floor, and all of a sudden one side stopped functioning and they turned mono, left ear only. Since I am a lot into DIY, I opened them to fix them. I did not like what I saw. OMG! What a crappy build quality. The cups are fixed to the over-the-head band with tiny and fragile plastic pieces which are just waiting to be shattered.
Summary: bought these largely guided by other reviews. the sound is pretty good although i think with hindsight i would get open ones. don't like the auto mute when you take them off which i only became aware of when it was too late, via another reviewer who also thought this a bad idea. he said his were already starting to give him problems.
AKG K-271 MKII studio hoofdtelefoon met mute schakelaar

Summary: Na verschillende jaren sennheiser te hebben gebruikt wilde ik wel iets anders, en kocht ik op aanraden de AKG K271. Goeie koptelefoon met een zeer neutrale klank, ideaal voor de studio. Aan de heren Deejays geef ik de raad deze koptelefoon niet te kopen. De mute switch is zeer gevoelig waardoor je de koptelefoon altijd recht op je hoofd moet plaatsen. Jammer dat je deze switch niet kan uitschakelen.
